I have a job that has two file triggers with different file masks. The Put Job in queue option is ticked. This morning the two different files that can trigger this job arrived at the same time, and caused the job to be started twice at exactly the same time instead of queueing one while the first one is running. The one instance that was started failed because of a log file lock clash with the other instance.

VisualCron version is 7.1.7, OS is Windows Server 2008R2.

I've attached screenshots of the settings, as well as the job log showing 2 instances were kicked off at exactly the same time.

We tried this several times with 7.6.1. with the following setup:

- 2 file triggers in one Job. One watching for *.gz files and one *.txt
- 2 Tasks. A wait Task using 3 second wait. A file write Task to write down the current time.
- We copied one txt and one gz file to the wathing folder at the same time.
- The Job was run two times.

Please test this with the latest version.
